Spirit of Achievement Arts and Culture Challenge Fund

The fund in now open for applications that will create opportunities for disabled people of all backgrounds to participate in arts and cultural activities, individually and with their families and friends.

They mean arts and cultural activity in the broadest sense, and include visual art, craft, writing and literature, music, dance and performance arts in our definition.

They will award between grants of between £100,000 and £250,000 to be spent over 2-3 years. Applications will be assessed by our Spirit of Achievement Panel, chaired by Susie Rodgers and made up of figures from the world of arts, culture and disability sport. They are particularly keen to see partnerships coming forward, applications from Disabled People’s User-Led Organisations (DPULOs)  and inclusive opportunities for both disabled people and their families and friends.
